This question requires uniform pronouns that follow the story's sequence of events. We
know the cat left the house covered in flour, right?
So the cat must've been the one who came back in out of the rain covered in flour-glue.
Thus, we can nix choice (A) since the use of the pronoun "I" makes it sound like
the writer was the one who left the house.
Choice (B) incorrectly uses the pronoun "I" as well. This time the placement of the pronoun
indicates that the writer was the one covered in flour-glue.
By using the pronoun "we," choice (C) indicates that the cat and the writer both
left the house and both ended up coated in gunk.
Choice (D) gets it right with the pronoun "he," which tells the story that the cat
was the one that came home covered in glue
